IDEAS TO FALL FOR

And on a lighter note, Fall is here, and I love this time of year.

Those dog days of summer are over and it is time to start planning for cooler temperatures, Halloween, Turkey Day and that festive Holiday time. I am hoping to see some changing colors as I travel later in the week from New Mexico to California, although it just might be too early. Before I leave I thought I would share my checklist for fall.

GO AHEAD: HIRE A PRO!

(Courtesy of My Window Man in Albuquerque)

Fall will be here soon, and it is time to plan ahead! Window cleaning is probably on your list, and I bet you would love to treat yourself to a break. If you have ever attempted to do yours, in and out, all by yourself, you know how challenging it is. Great reason to HIRE A PROFESSIONAL! They know how to wield that squeegee, climb ladders and do all those tricky windows. It really is a delight to have sparkly clean glass. I promise to expand this list over time, but here are some suggestions to help you find just the right professional.

WE ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE

A favorite of mine, and a great reminder!

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast,
The young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside.
“That laundry is not very clean”, she said.
“She doesn’t know how to wash correctly.
Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
The young woman would make the same comments.About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a
Nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:

“Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this.”

The husband said, “I got up early this morning and
Cleaned our windows.”

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others
Depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

It really is much easier to change how we view the world, as opposed to attempting to change what’s in it. 🙂
Good reason to keep all our windows clean. Life is simply an ongoing choice.

Shady Spectacles

 

Harlem

Blocking out the sun’s glare is almost as old as the sun itself. Exposure to UV light can increase the chances of cataracts, macular degeneration, conjunctival growths and certain cancers in the eye. New studies show that high altitude, mid-day exposure and some medications can make things worse. Why take that chance? Get some polarized protection at Sunglass WarehouseYou can buy them with prescription lenses, to wear over your normal glasses or just for fun. Even if you love to buy a top brand pair, having extras or substitutes is a great idea.  

Sunglass Warehouse is the place to visit!  You can get both protection and fashion. Their prices are so affordable you can have a pair handy anytime. Right now, they have many styles for under $20, and a code to use to get 15 % off your order. You will be amazed at the wide selection, and the options for protection and style. FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25!

THOSE DOG DAYS…

 

 

 

If asked, the dog that resides at my house would certainly agree that the dog days of summer have arrived.

It has been hot and humid (even here in Albuquerque) for days. Afternoons call out loud for a person to nap along with those dogs. Before I heed to that invitation, I want to remind all readers that the online places we refer you to have great ideas for summertime.

mypotsandplanters.com  decor for the patio and indoors – FREE SHIPPING on orders over $49

bloomingbulb.com fall planting ideas – up to 60% OFF

And if your windows are dirty, I always suggest that you HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. 

If you insist on washing your own windows, please use a squeegee and a wetbar. And, the suggestion of using vinegar and wadded up newspapers that you see in a lot of “how to” info is really not a good one.Best tip…HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. They are not expensive and it really does improve your outlook on life!

Top Ten Reasons Your Mom Needs Clean Windows

Meet my currently, blooming orchid! I am pretty sure I received it for Mother’s Day a few years back, and it keeps on blooming. They do make a wonderful gift, but how about adding window cleaning to the mix. It is not to late to call your favorite window cleaner (or one you do not know yet) and buy a gift of window cleaning. Any mom will appreciate this one.

In the last blog post here, I gave tips regarding maintaining windows. I decided to add why they need to be clean.

There are many reasons why your Mom wants her windows clean. Today I will give my top ten.

  1. To see the hummingbirds better
  2. To improve her outlook on life
  3. To support your favorite window cleaner
  4. To confuse the birds
  5. To boost her morale
  6. To make them sparkle
  7. To impress the neighbors
  8. To brighten up the inside of her home
  9. To enjoy the view
  10. To decrease damage and etching caused by pollution, water and dust, which in turn helps maintain the value of her home

See my point?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

OH DEAR… HIGH WINDOWS

Dear Son,  (my one and only son, and my youngest child)

I know your father taught you how to use a squeegee at an early age, and he might have even put you on a tall ladder once or twice. I do not remember giving you permission to climb up really tall ladders.

And, I know for sure I never suggested jumping off a building that was over half of a story. 

Please  try to look like you are having fun.

Love, 
Mom

Oh, the things we do for clean glass.

Are your windows dirty? Support your local window cleaner.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL!
